About James

 

 

James Albright holds a BA Music degree from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, which includes coursework in music, audio production, and business administration. There he was a full tuition scholarship winner, and outstanding soloist award winner with the university orchestra, big band, and small group ensembles. While in Nebraska he honed his skills as a classical bassist by performing with the Lincoln Symphony, and the Omaha Symphony. By the end of his schooling he had begun playing in clubs, and halls across the country as a jazz bassist.


He came to Kansas City in 1992, and currently makes his living playing gigs, concerts, events, recording music, and audio engineering. James continues to use his classical bass skills through his principal positions with the Northland Symphony, and Liberty Symphony, in the Kansas City area. He teaches bass at his private studio, at William Jewell College, and at Missouri Western State College.

 

In addition, he performs with a wide variety of groups, including the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra, the Knucklebusters, Tim Whitmer, the Terry Hancock Band, Tom Jacobs, the Kansas City Bass Quartet and The Bon Ton Soul Accordion band. He is equally at home in the classical, rock, country, jazz, and pop music styles, on both upright and electric bass. His on stage persona makes him as much fun to watch as he is to listen to.

 

James is also an audio engineer and session producer. He owns and operates a project studio, which  interfaces with full scale studios and home studios alike. Live sound engineering is also a regular part of his schedule, including everything from club dates, to concert halls. Whether generating custom bass tracks, engineering a show, or producing large multitrack works, versatility, creativity, and great sound are trademarks of Albright productions.
